Friday Flower Fiesta (9-27-13) — Flower art using Photoshop & Topaz Adjust
I don’t normally make you look at the same flower twice, and I won’t today, kind of.
I’m having so much fun with Topaz Adjust so I thought I’d share several art that I created using just one picture. Here’s the picture:
I’m not certain but I think that’s a flower from a Cereus cactus, or a cactus formerly in the Cereus genus. Plant geneticist are having a field day using genetic profiling to move cactus species from one genus to another. Things change so rapidly that I have trouble keeping up. Nonetheless, following are seven of my favorite artworks featuring that flower.
The first one would have been what I would have used as my final production if I just wanted to show a good picture of the flower. I think it has the right sharpness and color, with more detail (thorns) in the shadows.
All of these, every single one, were created with just a keyboard shortcut (Control F) to open the Topaz Adjust filter in Photoshop, and then one or two mouse clicks depending on what Topaz Adjust filter collection I wanted to use. There was no thought on my part other than, “I like this one” following by saving it.
